Thompson Coburn's elections webinar: Will Trumped-up primaries lead to madness at the presidential conventions?

January 25, 2016

Each day brings a new twist in the rollicking 2016 presidential election. From Trump’s towering lead to Bernie Sanders’ surprising dominance among young voters, take stock of the candidates and find out what’s coming next at our free one-hour webinar, “Election Prognostication," held Thursday, Feb. 4, at 3 p.m. EST.

With only days until primary voting begins, veteran political analyst Jim Ellis, joined by Thompson Coburn Lobbying & Policy Chair Ken Salomon, will discuss his predictions on the upcoming presidential primaries, including what to expect as voters decide in Iowa and New Hampshire and what to watch as the campaigns branch out past the traditional first states. He also will touch on the upcoming battle for the Senate and what this will mean for the new president and the start of the 115th Congress in 2017.

In addition, the webinar will touch on the following questions:

  • How will these wild primaries ultimately shake out to decide the Republican and Democratic nominees?
  • Will the Republicans be able to avoid a brokered convention in Cleveland or will real estate mogul Donald Trump sweep the field?
  • Will Hillary Clinton be able to beat back a challenge from self-avowed socialist Bernie Sanders on her way to becoming the first female presidential nominee?

This TCLE webinar is an offering of Thompson Coburn’s Lobbying & Policy Group, a bipartisan team of experienced government relations professionals who help clients interact with the highest levels of government, including the U.S. Congress, the White House, and select federal agencies.
